Transforming Your Organization in the Cognitive Era - 800

October 19, 2017
8:15am – 1:00pm

Agenda | Location

The cognitive systems era, one of the most exciting phases of enterprise transformation in more than a century, is upon us. The convergence of robotic process automation (RPA), machine learning, cognitive computing, artificial intelligence, and advanced analytics are driving unparalleled business model transformation.

The financial services industry is seeing a divergence between companies who use data and analytics to their advantage and those who do not. Trends like Digital becoming mainstream, ‘Customer intelligence’ as the most important predictor of revenue growth and profitability, re-shoring and localization due to advances in artificial intelligence, all have the potential to dramatically impact our operational and decision processes.

This WSTA seminar is targeted to learn about these advances and to understand how technology can enable the organization in this exciting new era.
